Baby steps for mompreneurs to create a business plan

Have you been putting off writing your business plan?biz-plan-graphic

Are you thinking that only “big businesses” looking for funding need to develop plans?

Or maybe you’re so stressed out, overwhlemed and busy that you can’t handle any sort of plan since you’re so busy putting out fires.

Well, any of these options makes you a very normal mom entrepreneur. But it’s hard to underestimate the value of having a plan for your business. Think focus. Think milestones. Think actions that actually lead to results. Think about finally getting what you want in life, rather than running as fast as you can from work to sporting events to client meetings to the dinner table.

I just interviewed Melodie Lane of the One Page Business Plan Company on my Blog Talk Radio show, and she shared several simple ideas and great resources to help mom entrepreneurs create a business plan that includes all aspects of their lives and business.

You can listen to the show, which is part of my WoMEN: What Mom Entrepreneurs Need teleseminar series, here.

    However I am not a mom, I totally agree with this! A businessplan, how small it might be, is an absolute must!

      Thanks, Peter. I think lots of entrepreneurs, women and men alike, are letting various hang-ups get in the way of creating a plan and then working the plan. The crazy thing is the freedom having a plan provides. I appreciate your help spreading the word.

    Thanks for the post on the One Page Business Plan. As one of their certified consultants I can tell you that I’ve helped many women create plans for their businesses. It helps them move from being self-employed (created a job for themselves and they’re boss) to creating a viable business.
